Review

"Author Tasha Alexander is one to watch -- and read. The continuing adventures of her Victorian heroine and increasingly intrepid sleuth Lady Emily Ashton commenced in 2005 with "And Only to Deceive," and they defy convenient categorization. They're historical thrillers, yes, and thrilling romances, and romantic mysteries. Mix in generous amounts of Victorian cozy, travelogue, epistolary puzzle, adventure yarn, societal expose and impeccably-detailed period drama, and you're getting close. . . . Lady Emily's evolution is fascinating, bookended by restrictive mores and worldly ambitions, filled with dashing suitors, amusing scoundrels and diabolical fiends, plus ladies dear and trustworthy (and alarmingly otherwise) . . . [Alexander] knows how to construct a compelling plot; but despite her cliffhanger climaxes and witty repartee, there's a depth of sensitivity which sets her apart."--"The Huffington Post""Inside this suspenseful, gothic mystery, Alexander paints a perfectly poetic Victorian landscape and takes readers into an old world re-imagined. . . . Alexander's love for the Victorian era elevates a captivating mystery into an unforgettable tale. Her extensive research of the era, combined with compelling characters, an irresistible heroine and a clever love story will translate effortlessly into minds of readers in the modern world. With wisps of darkness, shadows of a ghost story and embers of heightened Freudian themes, "Dangerous to Know" is the perfect novel to curl up with and chase away the world."--Examiner.com"Beautiful, headstrong and romantic Lady Emily is back. . . . Tasha Alexander's clever dialogue, along with her convincing period detail, brings life to her story and showcases the breathtaking beauty of the Normandy countryside. Considering its incomparable setting and irresistible characters, Lady Emily's fan club is sure to grow by leaps and bounds with Dangerous to Know."--Bookreporter.com"Engaging . . . it's quite creepy (in a good way) and suspenseful."--"RT Book Reviews"

I have enjoyed the previous Lady Emily books, but was disappointed in this one, despite the good descriptions of Normandy & Giverny. I find Emily herself increasingly selfish & her relationship with her husband psychologically unconvincing; I hope the author will get back on track in future books.

I enjoyed this novel as I have enjoyed most of the other Lady Emily that are available on Kindle. I do wish that instead of forever wandering off to other places on mysterious business, her husband could take a more defined and constructive role in these mysteries.

Sadly I did not enjoy this book at all - it was just not my type at all and I could not get into the story and I gave up
